About the Event


Millions of people worldwide look to the teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama for inspiration and wisdom, but few have had the opportunity to see first hand his generosity and grace of spirit. For over 40 years Victor Chan, Founder of the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education in Vancouver, has been a close personal confidant of His Holiness. Through these years of friendship he has been given unprecedented access to the Dalai Lama’s most intimate moments of compassion and wisdom.

THE WISDOM OF COMPASSION: Stories of Remarkable Encounters and Timeless Insights by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Victor Chan (January 2013). is the second collaboration from the two, their first partnership The Wisdom of Forgiveness was called “incredibly touching” (New York Post), and “intimate and endearing” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) and Publishers Weekly raved: “What comes through most clearly is the personality of the Dalai Lama himself: his humor, playfulness and joy.”

Once again, Chan offers a striking look at the Dalai Lama in his private moments and how he turns his personal compassion into concrete expression. These are extraordinary and never before told stories that show us why His Holiness one of the world's most beloved and admired spiritual icons.  We see him as he interacts with old friends and fellow Nobel Prize winners, school children and survivors of violence. From small interactions with a sick child to a lofty philosophical discussion with a preeminent group of global thinkers, the Dalai Lama approaches the world with delight, hope, and compassion.  These stories are highly readable, deeply moving and exceptional in their insights into the Dalai Lama's thinking processes and spiritual practices.
